Finding Freedom Within Containment
week four of a six week series
Join us for an inspiring yoga offering—six workshops, each exploring a different element of the yoga practice.
Binds are a wonderful way to take your practice to the next level. When done properly binds are a great way to deepen your poses and explore proper alignment. Binds help us explore new opening in areas that tend to be extra tight (low back, hips, shoulder), open up the heart, lengthen the spine and massage the internal organs. Though binds look intense, the key to binding is not to try hard, but to try easy!
Additionally, Bandhas (energy locks / valves) helps to create a meeting between body and soul so that we can get in touch with our spiritual practices. The bandhas are an excellent tool to use towards the development of one’s spiritual side. Through understanding the spiritual / energetic flow we can find a deeper and easier approach to our spiritual practice through yoga.
This workshop will be great for advanced as well as beginners!
Practice will be followed with a 15 minute meditation led by a Shambhala Meditation Instructor.
Who is this for: We invite new and seasoned yogis and yoginis to join in this opportunity to dive deep into this profound and practical tool for transformation.
